Force and coercion  are the only techniques when a government wants to control not just what people say, but by extension, what they think as well.

Some people will find ways to access what they want on the internet, but the rest of the country will continue to wallow in ignorance and the poverty of having their thoughts dictated to them by “The Party”.

winner-winner, chicken dinner 🙂
